Watch This Makeup Artist Transform Herself Into Kylie Jenner… She’s Scary-Good.
Makeup artist Hye-Min Park, more commonly known as Pony of PONY Makeup, has over 2.5 million followers on Instagram and more than 55 million views on YouTube. Just like many other successful beauty gurus, she's no newcomer and has been blogging diligently for years. She's currently most famous for recreating celebrity looks.
At the start of each of her videos when she reveals her bare face, you'll probably think 'There's no way this girl is going to make herself look like Taylor Swift (or whoever she claims to be recreating that day).' And then, with a a cartful of supplies and gentle flicks of the wrist, she does it. Every time.
Pony has also been hired to work with actual celebrities. Even if you're not necessarily into Korean pop culture, you might have heard of K-pop star CL (if you haven't, make sure to check out her dance performance video 'Hello B*tches'), who hired Pony as her makeup artist.
Trends may come and go but leave it up to Pony to lead the pack. She's already released a book and is working on her own makeup line, and she isn't showing any signs of slowing.
Hye-Min Park of South Korea, also known as Pony, is the genius makeup artist behind the popular YouTube channel PONY Makeup.

She is CL's Main GZB
Okay, what is a GZB and who is CL? A GZB is GIZIBE(기집애) in Korean, which translates as 'bad female' (in a good way). CL is a pop star who is known as South Korea's 'Baddest Female.'
CL posted this photo of her and Pony with the caption 'Ma main GZB.'
Taylor Swift Transformation
We are learning more and more about the power of makeup. Some argue that women use it to conceal their flaws but we like to see it as more empowering than that. It can be used to boost confidence, accentuate your best features, and even transform your look (for fun, of course).
Here's a glimpse of Pony preparing herself for a Taylor Swift Transformation.
Did you expect this as the outcome? It took some masterful contouring and a whole lot of patience. The video now has over 10.5 million views.
One person commented on YouTube, '[This] is some mad witchcraft. she made herself look JUST like taylor swift.'
